Need new wireless router (because Linksys blows) - Page 2

post #11 of 25
DLink isn't my cup of tea.

I have had good luck from my linksys, and its VERY DDWRT friendly (wrt54gL, L stands for linux maybe you need to check into it)

G'luck finding something to suit your needs, my GL is more than sufficient for me

I have the WRT54GL firmware. That is the firmware upgrade Linksys has for this particular router.
The router is working unusually well these past few days (I did treaten to replace it afterall ) so I may just keep it. What still bugs me is the crappy performance under WPA encryption; forget about lag, but full signal drops (and frequent too). So I'm stuck with WEP and annoying MAC filters.

maybe you might have better luck resetting the router and downloading DDWRT ? I'm running stock firmware and I only use WEP, i'm in a rural country area where I have one neighbor about 200 feet away and thats about it. They're idiots and don't know how to use a computer anyway. Its a one lane road with no shoulder (unless you park in the creek) so I don't see anyone parking and using my connection

I personally have a Belkin router and it works great. I have had no problems with it.

Okay, I really need a new one. Today I had to do a hard reset again. That's like twice in a week now. I'm thinking of getting one of these two:

Belkins routers are the BEST ive ever used, but their adapters for the computers...are less than fun to work with...

Havent personally used a Netgear, but have heard NOTHING but good feedback on em. Good luck!!

I have a trendnet wireles router. I have had no problems with it what so ever. Its a discontinued model, but signal was always good and never had a problem with it. Had it about almost 1 1/2 year now, I believe. I would say the trendnet, from what i said, it is very reliable, wish they just still made the model I have, it would read at 125Mbps

While browsing through my local Fry's I stumbled upon this Airlink router
http://www.airlink101.com/products/ar525w.html
Is it any good? How does it compare to the two routers i my last post? It's only $60, which is a steal for a MIMO router.

So I got the Airlink MIMO router that Fry's had on sale and I must say that I'm not impressed. Signal strenght is about the same and I still need to use a repeater to get a signal all the way to the back. I have two options: I could get a MIMO apter for my desktop and hope I can get a signal in the back of the house, or just get a normal router+repeater like I had before (I'll probably go with Trendnet or Buffalo). What do you guys think?
